Career Day

Jane Millar with Petoskey Middle School Students

Career Day is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Petoskey in collaboration with Petoskey Middle School. At this event, approximately 50 different careers are represented by local business people. The eighth grade students sign up for four, half-hour sessions with the various representatives. The career choices range from veterinarian to EMS employee to accountant to yoga instructor to fire fighter to chef and the list goes on.

This year’s Career Day was to be held at the Petoskey Middle School the morning of Wednesday, March 11, 2020. Unfortunately, this special event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Executive Director Jane Millar was scheduled to present sessions relating to mediation. In order to engage the students, in the past she has the students role play a scripted mediation. Through this process, the students learn how mediation works and how powerful mediation can be.
